Pinch me!

Oh my goodness.

I have been 
given permission
to tell you a 
big secret
that I have been keeping.

The sweetest woman,
found me one day last year
while blogging
and asked me if I would
be interested in sharing my
Christmas holiday decor 
and home with
Midwest Living Magazine.

Many of you know her,
she is quite famous it seems,
and many of you 
have worked with her.

You can read about her 
 many places including

Well, oh my heavens!
Just knock me down.

I was in shock for days 
and still keep thinking that
this is not really happening....
that maybe I just dreamed it.

in the old barn and stables?

Oh my heavens, 
like I said.

it's official 
and they'll
be here in early December 
to shoot 
for next year's holiday issue. 

Somebody pinch me.....
